I just wanted to share a very recent experience I’ve had with the V2 Trays for the 3L/3BL’s. I have three machines running and in the course of 2 weeks, we’ve burned through seven trays which failed either on their first run or with less 50% life on them. We run T2000 which is known to shorten tray life, but I can definitely tell you, and confirmed by Form Service that we’ve received a bad batch of V2 trays.
Service has been good about immediately replacing them and providing resin due to damaged prints, which I’m truly grateful for. This is more of a notice to the community to keep an eye out for bad trays and contact service immediately and they will replace the trays (and maybe kick in a liter or two of resin).
We had major teething issues with the V1 trays and we’ve been working through a stock of V2 trays when this started to happen. Mostly layer separation but generally the random failure of having a huge vee shape carved into our prints. On a counter point, I currently have one V2 tray with almost 400 hours on it using T2000 and still running strong!!! We know the V2’s are good, but there are still a few bad eggs in the batch.
